    Finally, I got asked the magic question...
    "Have you lost weight?"

    A loaded question for a thinnie to ask a transient fattie/thinnie, but I nearly hugged them!

    2 stone in 5 weeks and still going!

    I know I am going to have to jump up and down on the senior partner's head before he realises something has changed with one of the 'blondes' who spend all his money for a living, but hurrah - I don't care. I am on my way to being a neuvo-thinnie and burning all my old clothes in a big fire!

    Well done - great feeling. No one really noticed until I'd lost 3 stone - and now no one can remember me looking fat! Funny things....people!

    I agree, well done on 3 stone, that's amazing!

    Feels so good to be going in the right direction for once.

    Feel like a melting candle, it is all coming of the top and at the moment the bottom is largely uneffected, but given time I greatly look forward to the same forgetfullness from my colleagues!

    Yeah, it took me to be on the eve of 3-stone before people started noticeing, and the last couple of weeks I have had some really nice comments.

    What I really like, is several have simply said, "You look really nice lately" leaving the whole weight issue out of it!

    Strokes are good! Glad people are noticing Dragon!

    Thanks Lady :) x

    It just changes it slighlty from "Have you lost weight", which don;t get me wrong, is fandabbydosey too!!....but for me, them saying it that way, it means the I "look" different - me - not just my body. Does that make sense? - which means I probably look happy and confident, which is how I am feeling....so it really feels good. :D

    Loving life right now. :) It's a nice and was pretty much a long forgotten feeling. ;)
